An evolving understanding of pediatric allergic asthma’s complex immunopathology is contributing to new treatment paradigms. This activity will examine the impact of asthma phenotypes and endotypes on treatment selection.
This activity is jointly provided by Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Montefiore Medical Center, and MCM Education.
This educational activity is designed for allergists, pulmonologists, pediatricians, primary care physicians, and other clinicians involved in the diagnosis and management of allergic asthma in pediatric patients.
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
Characterize the role of phenotypes and endotypes in the management of pediatric asthma.
Apply new and emerging pharmacologic treatments for the management of allergic asthma to clinical practice.
